I loved the movie Cars, was not very crazy about Cars 2 and Planes wasn't anything special like the original Cars movie was. I would probably wait for it to come out in video for your kids to watch.

The creator of Cars have done it again. Excellent movie. The digital version felt like a 3D movie in that I was flying. Can't wait to see the 3D movie and to purchase the DVD set.

My 4 year old son waited an entire year to see this movie.I was greatly disappointed while 10 min into the movie he lost interest.

My son and I went yesterday to see "Planes," and thought it was really cute! The animation was amazing, especially the flying sequences. The story line was the "be fair, play nice, and help others" one appropriate for kids (and adults!) I REALLY appreciated that the usual Disney heavy-handed political messaging did not dominate the movie, as it did in the "Cars" series.

There is a lot of humor for both kids and adults. My airplane mags have all raved about the efforts made to be "true" to aviation details and it really adds to the movie.
They have done a great job here. ( yes it is still a kid's movie and fun fiction, but they have modeled the characters on real aircraft and paid attention to some details that bring the planes to life in a vivid way)
It is a good story and there are several excellent lessons about life that refresher that most of us can use/need.
